About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Dewsbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Dewsbury and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Dewsbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Dewsbury property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found cracks along one external wall when we last viewed the property. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. In general, homes are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

In areas of clay soil, a dry spell will lower the water table. This dries out and shrinks the clay, pulling on the homes foundations and which causes subsidence. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which begins to rot, can also destabilise the structure. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed a sixties house we are interested to buy, the agent said that there is an unsafe electrical system, will a Dewsbury survey go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Dewsbury your surveyor should comment on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a hazardous condition. This will include a non invasive view of open or exposed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other possible problems relating to things like ascertaining the condition of fitted appliances, for example water heaters or the whereabouts of the meter and fuse board .

Confirming the existence of any documents from any recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Dewsbury.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for English Garden Wall bond advice - can a property surveyor in Dewsbury assist? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick flats be affected by diverse problems, such as spalling. One particularly serious issue is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Contact Drivers Construction Services Ltd for a repairs estimate at 07511 503010 or 31 Waterside, Appleton, Warrington, WA4 3BS.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint.
